Our webinar on 15 July covered the DSA assessment process - what's involved and what this will look like during COVID-19.

The session, designed for students with a vision impairment who are about to start higher education in England, covered:

• What an assessment is for
• What equipment and non-medical help support you may be entitled to
• What preparation you need to do for the assessment
• What the assessment process will look like during COVID-19
• What will happen next
